Headquartered in the heart of Detroit, Michigan’s financial district, Quicken Loans is the nation’s largest online mortgage lender. They have been providing affordable mortgages and award-winning client service for more than 30 years.

Employee relocation can be complex and stressful, especially the home mortgage acquisition process. Unfortunately, enterprise relocation agents must complete this process manually for multiple employees concurrently. This can be time-consuming and leaves room for data entry errors.

Our Project Relo software is a web-based application that allows agents to easily store employee data and distribute it to partnered mortgage companies. Within our website, mortgage request update messages keep the agent and mortgage bankers aware of the requests’ statuses.

Upon login, relocation agents can view their currently active employee relocations and mortgage requests, shown in the top artwork. They can add new relocations and requests to the website through a simple form.

When selecting an employee relocation, the details are displayed, shown in the bottom artwork. From here, the agent can create new mortgage requests and complete the mortgage process on the employee’s behalf. Agents can select a mortgage request to view progress updates with timestamps. Completed relocations are archived and can be searched for by name or ID.

Our website also supports an admin user. They can add mortgage companies and agents into our software. If either of these users have their access revoked, their information is archived, and the admin can search for it by name or ID.

Our front-end web application is built with ReactJS while the back end utilizes Node.js, GraphQL and DynamoDB. All components of Project Relo are hosted on Amazon Web Services.
